Model and Capacity Building for Intergenerational Digital Literacy Training for Older Adults in Hong Kong

The digital training and immersive extracurricular learning activities for the older adults under this project is theory-based with content co-designed with stakeholders.  Apart from usual classroom training, cognitive and memory training, as well as immersion activities will be provided to the older adults.  Young people will be engaged to provide various assistance under the project to foster intergenerational communication. By the end of the project, an intergenerational digital training model will be formulated to build the capacity of different stakeholders in addressing the challenges of an ageing society.
